Dave Clamp

Dave has been receiving a huge number of good luck emails from around the world.  We thought we’d put some of them here on their own special page for him, and you, to read.  (You can read lots more comments and good wishes that Dave’s supporters are continuing to leave on individual blog posts.)

“Good luck in the big race starting sunday Dave, hope all goes well, you
will do really good, we will follow your pogress, all the best mate.” Andy

“Hi Dave hope you have a great race. When the going gets tough the tough get going.  I Know they don’t come any tougher than you.  I have no doubts that you
will be giving 110% because that is the kind of athlete you are.  GOOD LUCK Jim”  Jim Eckersley

“Bonsoir mon Ami,
Encore cette année, je vais te suivre à tous les jours via Internet.  Malheureusement, je ne serai pas en mesure de courir avec toi.
Je te souhaite une compétition à la hauteur de tes attentes.
Jean  (Gisèle say HELLO)”  Jean

    Hi Dave,
    had computer trouble so not able to contact you sooner. You seem to be doing fine without my encouragement though.
    I suppose I am now going to be losing sleep again like two years ago, looking up your progress in the middle of the night and worrying about you. You’re a big boy though and can look after yourself and sounds like you have a smashing team out there helping you.
    All the best to all of you.
    Everyone here is looking out for you and if we could send energy down the internet then you would be turbo-charged.
    Keep it up. We are all very proud of you.
    Cheers, John Heaney.
